Phillip Lim for Target: My Experience

Hey guys! I wanted tell you about my experience with the Phillip Lim for Target collection. Yesterday morning I woke up around 630 and got to target around 720.  The parking lot was pretty empty so I felt a huge wave of relief, however when I got to the entrance I saw just how big the line was. It was long but I thought it might not be a problem; however having about 50 people in front of you and like 20 bags in the store doesn’t give you a good chance of getting a bag. The area designated for the collection was really small and it was really difficult to grab things. By the time we got to the area a lot of things were gone. The boom sweater that I really wanted wasn’t there anymore and the cheetah print blouse was gone as well. I was there with my mom and we managed to grab a lot of things from different locations. The bags were really disappointing because they told everyone to get in line for bags, but a lot nasty little girls who don’t play fair decided to push everyone out of the way and get like 10 bags each…. I thought it was extremely unfair; however, we got lucky and grabbed a cute bag and then were able to exchange that bag with another girl for an even cuter one that I really, really wanted. I learned some lessons for next time and I thought I’d share them with you: 1. Do not get a cart! A cart would make it so much easier to grab a bunch of things, right? Wrong! You can’t grab things if you’re struggling to maneuver the cart in the tiny area; we made that mistake. 2. Manners don’t really matter in these situations. While you’re being polite and trying not to push people around, the girls who left their manners outside are holding all the bags. This was like hunger games; you don’t fight, you don’t win. 3. Lastly you should really try to get there early because the first people in grabbed some really good stuff.

All I all, I think we got some really cute pieces and I’m really happy we went. I got the cute mustard bag (although it looked much bigger in the pictures) and a lot of other things which I will show you guy really soon in some upcoming posts. Did you buy anything cute from the Phillip Lim for Target collection? Tell me in the comments below! Thanks for reading! ❤

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target: My Picks

Hey guys so today I thought I’d share with you some items I really want to get from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection. I think this collection is gonna go really fast so I you want to get some pieces from it make sure you go the day it is released (this Sunday, September 15th).

Philip Lim for Target

First I’m going to start with the clothing I want. I loved a bunch of the pieces with the orange and blue cheetah print, especially the skirt and sweater (and the outfit in the picture below as well). I love the boom sweater; I love that its very classic Philip Lim and I really want to get it. The tiger sweater is also pretty cute; as is the trench coat in the top right. And I absolutely love the pattern in the bottom right corner; there are really cute things I want to get with that pattern in the picture below.

 Philip Lim for Target

Now I love a lot of things in this picture. First I wanna say that all the outfits are incredibly cute and I would wear all of them. But the pieces I loved the most (and am really hoping to get) are the two outfits on the sides with the lovely patterns, and the dress (or is it shirt and skirt?) in the middle with the green sleeves. I was certain it was a dress but the outfit next to it has the same bottom, so now I’m not so sure, either way I want it.

Philip Lim for Target

I think the things I want most out of this collection is bags. I really want the two at the bottom, especially the mustard one. If I get nothing out of that store but the mustered bag, I’ll call the day a success.

Philip Lim for Target

So anyways that’s my preview/wish list of the Phillip Lim for Target collection. I’m super excited for it and I’m definitely gonna wake up really early and try to make it there before the store opens. Also they already have the site open if you want to take a look around http://www.target.com/c/3-1-phillip-lim-for-target-brand-shop/-/N-55ji0.

Remember Sunday, September 15th, 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target

Hey guys!! So this is the second part to the Saint Petersburg post. I really like the picture above, its the Saint Isaac’s Cathedral reflected in my sunglasses. The outfit is the same as the previous post cause this was the same day. This time we walked around the city and found beautiful places to take pictures. The last two pictures were in this restaurant called terrassa which was absolutely delicious. I hope this post will show you some of Saint Petersburg and maybe give you some ideas of where to take pictures if you go there. Anyways I really hope you like this post, I’ll put more commentary after each picture.saint petersburg

{And here’s the restaurant I was talking about. Its called terrassa and its delicious. Its part of a series of restaurants by Ginza Project and they all have amazing design. The food was good but we mostly went to their restaurants for the atmosphere. This restaurant for example was on the rooftop overlooking the Kazan cathedral. I liked what I ordered the best it was a honey cake with a bee on it and I would definitely recommend it. I’ll post more pictures of what we ordered and the interior in a later post.

I’m in Moscow now and we decided to have a little photo shoot on the Red Square. I found a bunch of things with this design at forever and I thought this was a perfect pattern to wear in Russia. The shirt can be found here and the skirt here (the bag I couldn’t find unfortunately but here‘s the beige version). The first time I saw the outfit on their website I had this picture in my mind like this outfit, red square, red lips, and I’m really proud of the results. So anyways here are the rest of the pictures, hope you enjoy.

  1. My comfy plane outfit: Jumper from Romwe (reminds me of a wildfox jumper),some black shorts, comfy flats and a pony tail.
  2. Bought some goodies at the duty free: They had mini versions of perfumes, I got this little set of miss dior, and three chanel nail polishes (rose cache, fracas, and june).
  3. Had an amazing 13 hour flight: slept through most of it and watched the first LoTR movie for the first time. Btw the green drinks in pictures one and three are just cups of water mixed with the green drink powder from trader joes (which im obsessed with).

Current/Elliot Cargo Jacket

cargo jacket

 I’ve been completely obsessed with cargo jackets and eagerly searching for one that fits me perfectly. I recently decided to splurge on this Current/Elliot jacket I’ve been eyeing at Nordstrom. It’s a little more than I would normally spend on a jacket but I was absolutely in love. Although its meant to be a shirt, the quality is so spectacular that it passes for a jacket. I also absolutely love the faded camo print I think it adds a nice detail and makes the jacket look more interesting. I paired the jacket with some cute accessories and booties from Forever21 and shorts form Zara. Anyways I took lots of pictures, hope you like them! <3

Blood Orange & Mint

Blood orange blazerI’ve been loving the blood orange and mint colors this spring and I think these bright colors are going to look just as cute in the summer. 

 

I think these two colors look super cute paired up. I found the shorts for at forever 21 that fit me amazingly well. I’m usually really picky when it comes to shorts but i loved how these looked and they fit perfectly.

Valentino Rockstud Dupes!

I’m absolutely in love with the Rockstud collection by Valentino, however the price point is a little steep for me. Like most working girls I always look for a better deal or a cheaper alternative. I spent a few hours online and as it turns out there are many affordable dupes for these beautiful shoes. Here are my findings<3

flipflopsvalentino

Ivanka Trump $58.95 I think these are really cute and the quality seems really nice, and I’m not sure but I think that these actually came out before the Valentino ones did (but again I’m not sure). I also think its nice that they are 80% cheaper than the Valentino ones.

Wet Seal $12.90 With these ones I think that you get what you paid for, the quality obviously is not close to the Valentino ones, and they will most likely fall apart much faster. However I still think they’re cute and a very good deal (96% cheaper than Valentino).

valentinoflats

Forever 21 $24.80 I think these are the closest to the Valentino ones, especially the black ones. They’re not glossy like the ones I had in that picture but I just found ones that look identical to the Forever 21 ones on the Valentino website. (and they’re like 96% cheaper:))

Sole Society $50 and Piperlime $40 I think these are cute but I don’t think they look as good as the Forever 21 ones.

(Edit May 2014)

These are currently the only available ones:

However check out these cheap Valentino Rockstud Dupes that I just made a new post about  (link to where to get them in the post)

Zara Wonderland01c0b17519f7f0a158be0ec0817b083d8fb0b6cfc6White Ankle Strap Flats with StudsZara Wonderland

heelsvalentino

ShoeDazzle $39.95 I think these shoes look very similar to the Valentino ones. If you want you could probably even stud the top strap and the sides to make it look even more similar. I think they’re a great deal and I’m definitely going to order them. (btw picture next to the shoe is from here)

Sole Society $49.95 These ones are cute too but I personally prefer the Shoedazzle ones.

Hopefully you enjoyed reading this, feel free to click around on the rest of my site!!
